Sweetheart Headband to Crochet

When I designed the Heart to Heart Toddler Dress for I Like Crochet, I got a little carried away and made a sweet little headband to match. They didn’t have room for it but I DO so here it is!

Materials:

Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme DK (100% cotton; 231 yards /211 meters; 100 g) Color #705 Pink I used about 20 grams or 50 yds

Hook: US size G/6 (4.25 mm) or whatever is comfortable for you at this weight – gauge is not critical for this pattern.

Notes:

Foundation chain is in the center, and you will work from the center out in both directions. This is far easier to do if you put your first row in the back/bump of the chain.

Ch 3 counts as 1 dc throughout.
